    Damaged Goods

    Damages sometimes occur during shipping. Since this involves communication with the shipping company and the customer, we will work with our customers to find a solution. With prior approval, documented, damaged goods may be returned and replacement items will be sent.

    To have damaged goods considered for replacement, send photos of damages, including all packaging materials, with a list and description of damaged items to Customer Support.

    Please note: It is common for packaging materials to become scuffed, dented, or otherwise cosmetically altered during shipment. Usually, the items inside are safe from harm and undamaged. For this reason, we advise against refusing shipments unless actual product damage is visible (e.g., the product is leaking from the box). See our Refused Shipments policy for details.

    Lost or Stolen Shipments

    Shipments lost by the shipping company will be handled similar to Damaged Goods, above. Please contact Customer Support in the event of a lost shipment.
    GreenSmoothieGirl.com is not responsible for shipments stolen from customer premises or delivery locations after delivery.

    Refusing a shipment is not an authorized method of returning an order. Please contact Customer Support for a return authorization number.

    Customers will be held responsible for costs incurred by refusing a shipment, including the cost of products lost or damaged in route back to our warehouse. Customers refusing shipments will be charged for the cost of return shipping and the restocking fee. Refused shipments that become lost or damaged will not be refunded.

    Class / Lecture Order Issues

    Customers must provide Customer Support a copy of the original order form and proof of payment. Order forms may be scanned or photographed and sent to Customer Support.

    Incorrect Shipments / Missing Items

    Incorrect order issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Missing items will be credited or shipped at no cost. A prepaid return label will be provided for the return of items sent in error. Group Buy orders have special requirements which must be met to be considered for order adjustment.

    Group Buy Incorrect Shipments / Missing Items

    Group Buy items cannot be returned. Since Group Buy orders often involve multiple customers and a coordinator, special requirements must be met by the designated coordinator to be considered for order adjustment.

    The 26-Day Detox will take you through 4 different phases, each of which have different recipes utilizing foods to systematically target the detoxification of specific organs in your body. The food required in the detox are real foods that you can purchase at your grocery store or health food store, and you eat plenty of food and should not feel very hungry. Robyn will take you through a colon cleanse, kidney cleanse, gallbladder cleanse, she incorporates detoxing protocols such as dry skin brushing, oil pulling, coffee enemas etc to detox your lymphatic system and liver. It is not just a "diet".

    Each of the 4 phases have different foods. The first phase you will eat lots of smoothies as well as some other raw and cooked foods like a potato soup and steamed broccoli. You will eliminate salt for the entire 26 days and will eliminate sugars for the first 4 days. There are a few days where you eat lots of watermelon and there are lots of really yummy recipes like purple heaven and black bug soup.

    This detox is far superior to most detox programs out there. It changes lives. Robyn incorporates the nutrition, internal cleansing, and healing protocols of Dr. Max Gerson in her 26 Day Detox as well as the protocols of Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. Richard N. Anderson, Dr. Ann Wigmore, Dr. Max Gerson, Dr. Johanna Budwig, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, and even Hippocrates. She has researched Detoxing for years, been to several clinics around the world.

  • With so much in 12 Steps...where is the best place to start? How am I to do it all?

     

    That’s why it’s 12 Steps! Just one at a time.

    Start with Step 1! Stay there until you’re feeling the difference and that motivates you to take another step!

    For your NEXT step, see what intrigues you. You don’t have to do the program in order! And make sure you’re on the Facebook support page (if you purchased that option) to ask questions of us, and your peers….stay plugged in!

    And remember, one recipe at a time, adds to your arsenal…..you don’t have to learn a LOT of habits to find that, voila! You’re a whole foodie! And you’ll slowly but surely start to feel and look better.

    We aren’t super militant about food around here, but we try to keep our diet organic, mostly plant based, and minimize dairy, gluten, and processed foods.

    If someone wants to take it that extra 10%, any occasional recipe that calls for something they don't want can almost always be left out or substituted, and we're happy to help with ideas.

    Robyn recovered her health by eating 60-80% raw, mostly organic, primarily plant based foods, and she keeps dairy, gluten grains, and processed foods to the "fun foods only" zone and feels that there has to be a bit of "play" in the diet in order to have a social life and not feel like a "mistake" you make is catastrophic and means you can't eat healthy.

    Some people with really serious health problems may need to be extremely vigilant about their diet for a time, with a zero-tolerance policy towards sugar, dairy, gluten, and/or meat for some.

    Robyn’s way of maintaining optimal health is to be vigilant about the 60-80 percent of her diet being greens (salads, green smoothies, green juice are DAILY staples, she never misses) veggies, and then fruit, legumes, whole grains mostly the gluten free kind, nuts and seeds. For sure she “plays” on Saturday nights, and occasionally...and then doing a very strict DETOX twice a year...She believes this the “2017” way of navigating a toxic, fast-food world, where you live with and around people who have no idea how to be healthy, and you have a social life, but you also maintain some basic principles of good nutrition.

  • How long did it take for Robyn to lose all her weight?

    It took me quite a few months. I had 70 pounds to lose.

  • How can I keep losing weight long term?

    I lost weight on the detox and then gained some of it back. Now I’m doing 12 Steps but not losing weight as much as I’d like.  How can I keep losing weight long term?

     

    Stay the course and remember that this is a lifestyle change. You didn’t get to the condition you’re in overnight and you won’t get out of it that quickly either.

    You may continue to experience various detox symptoms as you progress through 12 Steps and add new things and foods to your daily diet. Stay vigilant and aware and open. Keep track of foods that may have an adverse effect on you and adjust accordingly.

    Trust the process. And trust that as you keep putting in more good whole foods, your body is making the changes that it needs to in order to be well...and if weight loss is what it needs it will do that too.

    Also I suggest making green smoothies--heavy on the greens, light on the fruit--a bigger part of your diet. And/or big, colorful, high-variety salads. With greens, yes--but also veggies (raw or steamed), and legumes like kidney beans or black beans or chickpeas. Bulky, high-fiber plant foods, in whatever form YOU prefer them (smoothies, salads, stir fries, etc.) are the answer to pushing other addictive, processed foods that cause weight gain OUT.

    Now, if you’re doing all that, and not losing weight?

    Google a bioidentical hormone specialist, in your area, and get a full blood panel. (Not a regular OB/GYN or GP. They just measure your TSH and send you home if you’re within their HUGE “normal” range.) You may have a hormone issue, if eating super-healthy doesn’t cause weight loss. Thyroid disorder is very, very common.

  • Would I lose any of the benefits and/or nutritional values of the green smoothies if I made them the night before for my breakfast and lunch?

    I make them the night before all the time!

    I just recommend eating it within 48 hours OR freezing the leftovers in ice cube trays to easily blend back up fresh in the future.

    To paraphrase Michael Greger from nutritionfacts.org on this issue, you need to prepare your food in such a way that you will eat it to get the most nutritional value.

    Perhaps a SMALL amount of nutrition is lost when making them in advance, but 100% is lost if we don't eat the good food at all because either we didn't like the way it was prepared or didn't have time etc.

    So please prepare your smoothies and other food in advance and do not worry about the negligible loss of nutrition.

  • How long will a Green Smoothie keep?

    How do you freeze a Green Smoothie and how long will it last?

    You can freeze a Green Smoothie indefinitely.

    I pour them into pint size jars and store in the freezer.

    Then when ready to use...allow to thaw at room temperature or in the fridge and if you can, re-blend for better texture.

    You can also freeze in ice cube trays to re-blend again later as well.

     

    How long can you keep a Green Smoothie in the fridge for?

    Smoothies in the fridge are best not kept for longer than 2 to 3 days.

  • Why is there a Prop 65 warning on GreenSmoothieGirl plant protein products?

    GreenSmoothieGirl's plant proteins contain naturally occurring elements that are included on the Prop 65 list of substances that require a warning. The occurrence of these elements in natural plant based products is to be expected and the result of the presence of these naturally occurring elements in the environment.

    The extreme standards of Prop 65 have resulted in warnings appearing on an increasing number of natural foods whose levels of naturally occurring metals do not meet the Prop 65 standards.

    Levels of metals or chemicals that are known to the State of California to cause cancer would have to exceed the prop 65 standards by more than 1,000x before there is an observable effect on the rate of birth defects.

    We test our products for quality and purity and we stand behind every product we sell. We are constantly working to ensure that our products are the best available and meet the standards of our amazing customers.

     

     

     

  • I'd like information on the Infared Sauna

    You can use this link to watch Robyn’s Sauna Webinar replay.

    You can get sauna pricing and contact information for Health Mate Saunas at this link.  

     

     

     

  • How are your products made “raw?”

     

    The best short answer is "dehydrated."

    It's a little more complicated since we have a raw product (i.e. over 95% of the product was dried at under 120 degrees F).

    Everything except the Maca and Spirulina (which wouldn't be safe raw) is dehydrated in various ways under 120 degrees to maintain the raw status.

    For example, the Noni Fruit is dried over 3-4 weeks in natural shade under controlled conditions. The Mesquite pods go in a low-temp dehydrator at 100-104 for 4 hours before cold-milling. Stuff like that.

    The goal is to remove the moisture from the ingredient so that it can't grow microorganisms (and pass the "micro" test both into the copacker's as an ingredient, and back out as a mixed product).

  • Where are your products sourced from?

     

    Protein: Pea: US Quinoa: Peru Agave Inulin: Mexico. Processed and packaged in USA

    Protein/superfoods combo: Pea: US Quinoa: Peru Agave Inulin: Mexico Flax: US Chia: Mexico Hemp: US Vanilla: Madagascar Green Tea: India Superfood Blend: various Processed and packaged in USA

    Flax​​​​​​​​: Canada

    TriOmega: Flax: Canada Broccoli: Canada Chia: Australia

    Gardenvites: Vitamin Blend: USA Superfood Blend: various

    Additional ingredients:

    Monkfruit (Japan) is non-GMO, but isn’t organic because there is currently only one source of organic monkfruit, and it is from China--GSG doesn’t source from China, and the supply chain is also not yet reliable.

    Natural Vanilla Flavor: non-GMO tapioca maltodextrine, non-GMO rice concentrate

    Natural Chocolate Flavor: non-GMO tapioca maltodextrine

  • Ultimate Minerals

     

    Ultimate Minerals Directions and Dosage

    Ultimate Minerals Directions: Shake before use (Some settling is normal). Dilute 1 serving in  8 oz of pure, non-chlorinated water. No refrigeration needed. Do not freeze.

    Serving Size: 1ml (1 dropper full or about 25 drops)

    Servings Per Container: 120

    Recommended Use: 3 Servings per day, spread throughout the day, for maintenance. New users should begin with one serving per day, adding one serving each week until achieving the recommended dosage of 3 servings per day.

     

    Are Ultimate Minerals okay for infants and children?

    Yes. For children 12 and under we recommend half a dose. So slowly work up to half a dropper full in purified water twice a day. For infants it’s probably best to only do half a dropper 1 time a day.

     

    Do the Ultimate Minerals contain Heavy Metals?

    Ultimate Minerals undergoes heavy metals testing and is free of heavy metals. Any trace minerals in Ultimate Minerals traditionally associated with "heavy metals" (lead, etc) are in the organic, ionic form used by organisms (including humans) for necessary cellular function. They are not in the isolated, processed form that is toxic to living organisms.

     

    Where are the Ultimate Minerals Sourced From?

    Our minerals are sourced out of the Fruitland Formation in Texas.

     

    What Minerals Are In the Ultimate Minerals Product? What are the amounts of each mineral?

    Because fulvic/humic acid is "mined" from ancient plant deposits in the Fruitland Formation, the amounts of each micronutrient (minerals, vitamins, aminos, etc) is going to vary with each batch produced, so to attempt to put an amount on each is folly.  The substances typically found in Fulvic/Humic acid are as follows.

    Should I be worried about Mineral Overdose while taking the Ultimate Minerals?

    Fulvic acid contains trace amounts of both macro and trace minerals; it is not the amount of each mineral and other nutrients inherent to fulvic acid, but the type and balance of minerals that is important in fulvic supplementation.  Unlike rock-derived minerals, the minerals in fulvic acid are plant-derived and thus organic and ionic, meaning readily bioavailable and absorbed differently than rock-derived minerals.

    This also means that these minerals are not in isolation as when a person takes a calcium supplement, but work together as nutrients from plant food does, decreasing any risk of overdose on any one nutrient.  As I am not a scientist or doctor, I can't state that there is NO risk of overdose, but knowing how these substances work synergistically, my own opinion is that overdose risk is so miniscule as to be negligible to nonexistant.

    Fulvic acid is not recommended to replace doctor-recommended supplementation of single macro minerals like calcium, magnesium, or potassium, or even a trace mineral like iron.  There is simply not enough of any one of these minerals to correct a medically-significant deficiency of an isolated mineral, especially macro minerals.  

    However, I would suggest that a fulvic supplement is much much more than a way to address trace mineral deficiencies on an isolated-mineral level.  Its composition, form, and function is a whole-organism approach to supporting health. Providing a source of organic trace minerals is one of those functions.

     

    What is in the Ultimate Minerals and how does it work?

    To be clear, Ultimate Minerals is a fulvic and humic acid supplement. Though it does naturally carry minerals, trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and elecrolytes,  fulvic acid and humic acid's value is in HOW those are carried and how it operates on cells.  From a 3rd party article on Livestrong:

    “Because fulvic acid provides electrolytes that enhance the electric potential of cells, this can also benefit mineral deficiencies that may be rooted at the cellular level. For example, deficiencies of iron, calcium and magnesium can be more difficult for your cells to absorb without adequate levels of fulvic acid present in the body.”

    We call our product Ultimate Minerals because the rare trace minerals in fulvic/humic is usually why people take a fulvic/humic supplement, and because these minerals are particularly bioavailable because of the unique molecular structure of fulvic and humic acids.

     

    Do the Ultimate Minerals Expire?

    The Ultimate Minerals won’t go bad since they are essentially dirt, but we recommend that you store the Ultimate Minerals in a cool dark place consume them within 1-2 years to avoid thickening.

     

    Do you test your Ultimate Minerals for Heavy Metals?

    Yes we most certainly do test for heavy metals. This is very important. Testing is routinely done on Mercury, Lead, Arsenic and Cadmium.  We also run an element analysis quarterly where other more rare metals would be detected.

    There are significant differences in quality of raw material sites throughout the world. Some raw humate deposits have naturally occurring levels of heavy metals. I know of several in the US such as Utah, the Northern US and SE US. Some of these humates are still usable in industrial applications.  

    Also some sites are exposed to airborne heavy metal drift from coal fired electrical power plants especially where raw materials are stored out in the open for extended periods of time and not used as they are uncovered. These raw materials could likely test for mercury and cadmium.  

    The Fruitland Formation is extremely remote and very far from any coal fired electrical power plants. It is pretty far from anything period.  Raw materials are transported and processed as they are uncovered. The Fruitland's location also prevents a lot of other types of contamination.

     

     

     

  • Pre-Zyme Pro

     

    What are the Organic Trace Minerals on the label?

    One of the many jobs of trace minerals is as a co-factor for enzymes.  That is, they act as a "trigger" so that the enzymes can do their job.  A trace-mineral-deficient person (as most of us are, especially if we don't take Ultimate Minerals) may not be able to utilize enzymes efficiently if the mineral co-factors are not present. So we added a small amount of what is actually powdered fulvic acid to this product to provide the cofactors.  This is one of the reasons our product is superior and better utilized than other digestive aids.

     

    Can I skip Ultimate Minerals if I am taking PreZymePro, since it has minerals in it?

    The small amount of fulvic acid in PreZymePro is calibrated to be enough to help the enzymes in both the product and the stomach to do their jobs.  It is not enough to be considered a supplement for daily minerals.

     

    I've seen studies suggesting that exogenous use of pancreatic enzymes will have negative feedback on the pancreas itself, thus reducing the need for the pancreas to actually do it's job. This is fine in pancreatic cancer patients or others with pancreatitis, but, in healthy individuals I'm skeptical. I don't want to end up with a lazy pancreas and then further on in life have pancreas problems secondary to atrophy from exogenous pancreatic enzymes.

    Can you shed some insight on this?

    PreZymePro contains plant-based enzymes rather than pancreatic (usually swine-based), and it is these pancreatic enzymes which are at the center of the question.  My understanding is that there is no conclusion on that particular question. There is a good summary of the issue with study citations HERE, under the heading "Does taking oral enzymes have an inhibitory feedback on pancreatic enzyme secretion?"

    Do the probiotics and enzymes survive stomach acid?

    Probiotics require a slightly acidic environment, in fact the name of one of them is lactobacillis acidophilus, where acidophilus means “acid-loving.” They are well-suited for surviving stomach acid, especially when taken with food, which raises the pH of stomach acid.

    PreZymePro enzymes are derived from plant sources rather than animal-sourced pancreatic enzymes. Pancreatic enzymes have a much lower tolerance for acidic environments, but plant microbial-derived enzymes are acid-resistant, and can maintain activity at a wide range of pH levels.

    Is Prezyme pro is suitable for Vegans?

    Yes.

    Placement of the xZubi on your various devices is simple. Here are some suggestions to help you decide how to best use your xZubi.

     

    xZubi Placement on Devices

  • What "high grade materials" are in the xZubi disc?

    xZubi is composed of high grade lenticular materials that will hold up to everyday use.  

    Our adhesive is also the highest grade and was developed by 3M specifically for the xZubi Disc.

     

     

  • What is the technology behind the xzubi disc? How does it work?

    World-renown scientists developed a proprietary process, using para-magnetic technology, that attenuates and mitigates the electromagnetic fields emitted by electronic devices.  

    They took these simple, life-defending components and put them together as micro-thin layers where they could be assembled in a small disc to fit small devices like cell phones.

    Once assembled, these components become a fortress in defending you and your loved ones against the damaging effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF's).

     

     

  • What does xZubi's Technology do?

     

    xZubi neutralizes the harmful radiation emitted by your wireless phone and other electronic devices.

     

  • Does xZubi really work?

     

    Yes! xZubi has been tested, proven, published, and patented all over the world.

     

    You can read the FCC study which shows how having a xZubi attached to your cell phone achieves a significant SAR reduction. And also how having xZubi attached improves brain wave function.

Robyn's Recommendations

Robyn's Opinions and Recommendations

  • What Skin Care and Cosmetic Products does Robyn Recommend?

    Robyn recommends AnnMarie Skin Care and products from The Spa Doctor

    For foundation, don't use products containing mineral oil, which are generally the low cost tanning oils and foundations as well as many other skin products. If you’re going to use facial powder or foundation, choose “bare minerals” instead—still not nontoxic, but far better than mineral-oil products.

    When choosing cosmetic products, look for natural, greener products at your health food store instead of a discount store like Target or Wal-Mart. Although standard markets are increasingly boarding the organic foods bandwagon, they are slower to offer nontoxic personal care products. 

    Brands like Kiss My Face, Vita Bella, All Stop, Burt’s Bees, Garden of Eve, and others are vigilant to avoid endocrine disruptors, heavy metals, and poisonous chemicals in their products. But many who call themselves “nontoxic” eliminate one toxic ingredient for another. So it’s imperative to know what toxic ingredients are and always read labels.

    We also have a great resource called the Genius Guides which include a wallet card for Toxic Cosmetic Ingredients you should avoid.

  • Skin Cancer

    Below are 4 of Robyn's posts regarding skin cancer and what she did about her own skin cancer. 

    How To Get Rid of Skin Cancer Naturally

    Wanna see my skin cancer??

    What I Did About My Skin Cancer

    Skin & Your Cancer Risk by Dr. Tami Meraglia

    Robyn purchased the black salve and Sangre de Drago  she used on her own skin cancer from https://www.herbhealers.com/.

    Disclaimer: please consult with a trusted healthcare professional before you make any decisions for yourself. We do not give health care advice. This is Robyn's story and I do not suggest you do what she did. It’s not for everyone. You should, however, know your options, the pros and cons.

  • What opinions does Robyn have on the Blood Type Diet?

    One of the more frustrating diet plans, to me, is the blood type diet. The idea is that you have a certain blood type because your ancestors were from a certain place, so they adapted to a specific diet. You are then instructed, based on having O, A, B, or AB blood, to eat according to the prescription. Vegetarian, highly carnivorous, a mix of the two, grains or no grains, etc.

    The diet has no real science backing it. Only a very dubious theory.

    The theory collapses when you consider that every indigenous population of the world has all the blood types: A, B, AB, and O. It’s also highly problematic when you consider how much genetic mixing and nomadism we’ve had in recent centuries. Few people have both parents going back to the same origins

    You may feel better because the author of the nutrition program eliminates gluten from the type O diet. That will make everyone feel better, as grains have been hybridized and are causing many people problems.

    And he tells all type A’s to eat vegetarian, which is actually a good diet for most, if not all, people.

    (As always, I refuse to take a stand on whether a limited amount of animal protein is good or desirable or at least acceptable—but it’s clear that more plants, and less animals, is across the board, more environmentally sustainable and more health-promoting.)

    And you may feel better because regardless of your blood type, you’re told to eliminate processed foods such as white flour.

    Read the complete article on my opinion here.

     

  • What does Robyn think about the Autoimmune Paleo Diet?

    What does Robyn think about the Autoimmune Paleo Diet? (That Izabella Wentz recommends for Thyroid issues.)

     

    The AIP diet may be worthwhile, short term, while the gut heals...and I’ve discussed this with Izabella, who like Paleo (she’s young, and I’ve spent about 18 more years on this planet studying diet than she has…) but while it’s good in that it bans dairy and processed food...it’s too much meat for me.

    I do NOT feel good eating like that. And if you read “How to Not Die”...you’ll understand why. Best health book of 2016 and there are 130 pages of references to the studies Dr. Michael Greger, MD cites about the power of the plant-based diet.

    Izabella is fantastic, and her work is life changing...but Paleo is a fad, and I believe that AIP is a fad too...some good things there, but banning legumes and whole grains? That’s just going way too far!

    Most of Africa, with no access to American processed foods, eats just grains and vegetables and they have virtually NO heart disease or cancer, or neurological disease or auto-immune.

    I’m actually about to be on my friend Dr. Alan Christianson’s program (he’s an adrenal and thyroid and hormone expert), an NMD, talking about how I reversed my own auto-immune disease with a plant-based diet.

    I was recently talking to one of our new employees, who did AIP and felt terrible. Try it if it resonates with you, but remember, it’s just another new fad diet.

  • What research has Robyn done on Vitamin D sources? What does she recommend for those suffering with Vit D deficiencies?

     

    There is no substitute. Take your Vitamin D3 + K2 in the winter, great idea—but we still need sunshine. Human beings had no problem getting regular sunshine until the past few generations. With the shift away from an agricultural society, populations, in general, now spend the majority of their time indoors.

    Turns out, it is a misconception that people should stay out of the sun and/or slather themselves with sunscreen. In fact, the #1 correlate for cancer risk is how far from the Equator you are! The further away, the less sun, the higher the cancer risk. High Vitamin D levels actually correlate to low cancer risk.

    Lack of sunshine is also a perfect recipe for depression. In the last two decades, a diagnosis of “Seasonal Affective Disorder” is practically an epidemic. That’s because people who live far from the Equator, with long, overcast winters, are living in conditions that few humans ever have—totally indoors. Our biology demands sunshine and everything that comes with it—hands in the black dirt, grounding us, feet in the grass, breathing clean air, and feeling the warm sun on our skin.

    Don’t wash that Vitamin D off when you come inside. It takes hours for it to internalize, as hormone, and work with calcium to build bone.

Group Buy FAQ

  • When is the Group Buy?

    Group Buy 2018:

    Oct 14 - Nov 30

    We do our Group Buy once a year, usually starting in mid October and ending the last day of November.

    From time to time, we run a limited Group Buy in the spring.

    Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter so you can receive notification of when it kicks off, and receive other information as well. This is the main place that Robyn communicates and writes about the group buy. 

    You can also see on the Group Buy Page

     

  • How do I join the Group Buy?

    Anyone can order Group Buy items. No joining required.

    For smaller quantities or to save on shipping, find a buying club, co-op, or group in your area, visit the Group Buy Forum

  • How does Group Buy work?

    The GreenSmoothieGirl Group Buy is an annual buying opportunity we arrange by purchasing large quantities from and maintaining good relationships with our whole foods suppliers, which enables us to get low prices.

    These low prices are offered to you and we only charge enough to cover our shipping costs.

    It’s part of our mission of health.

    Individuals may purchase directly from the GSG Shop. Most bulk items are 25 lbs, which may be too much for some individuals.

    For this reason, we provide a Group Buy Forum, and suggest ways for our whole-foods customers to join or coordinate a local group order where the large quantities can be split between several buyers.

     

  • Do I have to be in a buying club?

    No. Anyone can purchase Group Buy items.

     

  • How do I join or start a co-op?

    We have set up a Group Buy Forum for that purpose.

    Indicate on the forum whether you want to organize the co-op or join one organized by someone else.

    Coordinators can calculate prices, email members, break orders down, and arrange for pickups.

    We have provided Group Buy Forms and Worksheets.

    Coordinators can use these to organize a group order with friends and community, and also earn some income. The forms make it easy for organizers to set prices for their group. (We recommend a markup of 20% or less.)

    To organize a group, ask someone you know interested in health and nutrition, and ask that person who she knows, and so on. Networking can yield a large list of people who want to participate in your group buy.

    You can reuse and maintain the list of people to do group buys in the future.
